Boston Police report arresting a Hyde Park man on gun charges for an incident Wednesday afternoon that started in the parking lot of a Blue Hill Avenue liquor store that ended with a chase up Blue Hill Avenue - and the recovery of the gun he tossed up onto the roof of a block of stores kitty-corner from the B-3 police station.
Police say officers were monitoring the Fernandes Liquors II parking lot at 1212 Blue Hill Ave. around 5:20 p.m. when they noticed two men "who observed the officers and immediately hurried away from them." When the two then entered an area marked "No Trespassing," police say, the officers went over to talk to them - only they both ran:
At this time, officers gave chase and pursued the males on foot into a local business at 1186 Blue Hill Avenue. The two suspects then fled the area again, but were both located and secured a short time later as officers and detectives continued their investigation into the bag which had been thrown onto the roof of the businesses at 1186 Blue Hill Avenue. Inside of the bag, officers discovered a Glock 26 .9mm firearm loaded with nine rounds of live ammunition. The firearm was safely removed from the roof with the assistance of the Boston Fire Department.
Kerry Charlotin, 29, of Hyde Park, was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition and carrying a loaded firearm, police say. The man with him was charged with trespassing, police add.
